Well I guess I'm gonna have to something that represents the style. I don't think to carry many at Wholefoods

I'm not a big fan of them. They don't taste like beer to me. They taste like candy fruit cough syrup. But like y'all it's the only beer my wife will drink. Precisely because they don't taste like beer. She's got a bottle of their framboise in beer fridge.

I love a traditional lambic/gueuze, and my wife despises them more than any other beer ("vinegar armpit foot juice" is what she calls them). Shows just how far removed from traditional lambic the Lindemans beers are. Now, their Gueuze Cuvee Rene is FANTASTIC and much more true to style.

Nope, but I figure maybe a little later after I've recovered emotionally from the fact that I've dropped about 2 grand on beer and brewing ingredients this month I would try to hit you up for some

Well, after drinking the abrasive everything else pretty much tastes like water so I'll quietly weep into a glass of my completely inadequate Black IPA. Thanks for ruining my life Surly Brewing! Are you happy!
